While it's not unusual to see a cat roaming the streets of Varna, Bulgaria, a Black Sea resort town, one feline has caught the attention of passersby.
And how could it not?
It's a vibrant emerald green.
The "green alien" has been roaming the streets for a year. At first, no one knew how the cat became such an unnatural color.
It was thought that someone painted it as a cruel joke.
There was even a Facebook group called, "Punishment to the the perpetrator of this criminal act!"
But then the truth was revealed.
The cat reportedly sleeps in an abandoned heap of synthetic green paint in a garage.
Now that's a cat of a different color!
People have been trying to catch the cat to give it a much needed bath, and to take it to the vet.
But the cat is elusive and hard to catch. So, in the meantime, we can enjoy photos and video of this thing of beauty before its bath.
